once upon a time

silhouette

once upon a time, there where 2 children who loved animals very much.
the children and the animals used to spend all day playing.
they lived in a garden filled with flowers, the birds always came to drink water in the little stream.
it was a beautiful garden, the children and the animals and the birds where all very happy…

sewing paper bags and lots more because today is the day

i have started making my own bags for my clothes to go in when I sell them.
i am using old books that we find at paper recycling, or second hand shops.
then i stitch them up with my sewing machine. its fun and interesting.

i found these pictures in a book i have had since i was a little girl, i just love the illustrations so much and the children are wearing such lovely clothes……i remember looking at the pictures for hours. its so nice to look back and see that i was already being inspired as a 4 year old.

Autumn, nearly winter now……Scraps in the sun.
